    Thumbs down Oh For [Crap's] Sake!

    Literally!

    I got home from work today, got the Buckaroo out to go pee, and went out my front door in to 93 degree weather to find a bag of poo on my door step. Yes, a bag of poo. I looked closer, it was older, and large, like Lab size poo.

    At first I thought kids. But what's the fun in leaving a Fred Meyer bag of poo with no flair? I tried hard to figure it out, I know all my neighbors pretty well, most have dogs, and I am very good about picking up after the Buckaroo if he drops off a load in someone's yard. In fact, I bring my shovel every time I go to Bob's yard because Buck loves to unload on his very pristine and soft cushy grass. The neighborhood congregates at Bob's so we are there just about daily.

    Then I remembered, yesterday morning Buck pooped twice, we were out for a while and he had had a bit too much to eat Saturday. He pooped at Bob's near where we were talking and also by another neighbors property line that I don't know well. The guy was outside, I don't know if he noticed me swing by with the shovel when we left off chatting to grab it and take it home to dispose of.

    I saw his wife outside so I went over and asked her. She acted odd, and said "Well, I didn't do it but I will ask my husband." Which made me think she was even odder. She said it was childish and I said that I thought leaving poop on a door was childish. I also said that I made a habit of picking up Buck's poo, that the poop belonged to a dog 3X his size, and that there were so many dogs that walked by there how on earth would anyone decide to leave a bag of poop on someone's door! I asked that if they had issues to please come talk to me about it. I also said any more poop bags would be returned, and I said that I had a surveillance camera inside that records everything from my front door to the road. Now, I don't really but I don't mind putting that out there.

    I mean seriously, these asshats really can't miss me tooling around with a dang almost 5' tall full size bright cherry red handled digging shovel!!??

    Sheesh.

    That sucks! Glad you made them aware that you are a picker-upper of your poo. Maybe add a flashing light and siren to your daily routine?

    You really shouldn't encourage me like that. Polka music would add the festivity needed, yes?

    No, I have a pooper scooper, a cute little one with hinges that scoops up and carries the poo. But, it is inside by the cat box, unused. My digging shovel on the other hand I love and do things with it all the time so it is always right on hand when there is some Poo Action. Bonus I live in Tacompton so with my shiny red digger I can always whack-a-drunk should the occasion arise.

    Tacompton! How true... Trust me, she needs some fire power, or at least a whacking tool close to hand. One step closer to the beloved triple S solution so beloved by many COTHrs.

    So, did you already have this picture handy or did you take it specifically for this discussion?

    I agree it's a mighty fine looking shovel.
